Episode 1:

Why not start at the end, the place where products and materials land when they are no longer needed? The Attero waste facility in the village of Wijster in the northeast of the Netherlands provides the backdrop for a discussion on whether our trash is a goldmine full of potential, a source of new materials, or a curse and the inevitable consequence of an untenably wasteful system.

Participants in the conversation are designer Daria Biryukova; marketing manager and spokesman of Attero, Robert Corijn; philosopher Lisa Doeland; designer and founder of StoneCycling, Tom van Soest; and designer Basse Stittgen.
